Sacha Gervasi To Direct Boy George Biopic

Following the success of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Rocketman,’ it has been announced that Sacha Gervasi (‘My Dinner with Herve,’ ‘Anvil: The Story of Anvil’) is set to write and direct a biopic based on the life of iconic singer Boy George.

News on the project comes from Deadline’s Mike Fleming, who hears that the untitled film will explore the larger-than-life singer’s humble beginnings in an Irish a working-class family, through his rise to the top of the international charts with the ’80s band Culture Club.

The biopic is set up over at MGM, with Kevin King Templeton (‘Creed’) and Paul Kemsley producing. George and Jessica de Rothschild are on board as executive producers.
